Fix No Wireless Network in Ubuntu – HP ENVY


Hello everybody.

A couple of days ago, I decided to install Ubuntu as my OS on this machine (HP Envy).

Everything was great, the installation was pretty easy and fast…

The problem was when I started the OS itself… I could not use Wifi, and couldn’t connect to a wireless router and use an internet connection.

After going on the web and searching for it, I found the solution, and I guess it’s worth sharing in here.

So let’s go 

Basically, you will have to run three commands on your terminal.

A very important step, as I said before I couldn’t use a wireless router, so to run these commands you must connect your computer with an internet cable, after that make sure you have a connection.

As we are gonna use the ‘sudo’ keyword, you might have to enter your password to make it work.


$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

$ sudo modprobe wl

It was this simple, and then I could see the wireless networks around me, and could successfully use a wifi connection.

Thank you.
